Back when Vanilla WoW was the Live version, I had hit level 60 on my Shaman and probably got to play the 2H windfury double crit proc build for about 2 weeks before the release of TBC.

By far the most fun I have in PvP and since then I have been wanting to play a 2H Shaman, it sucks that it was no longer a thing after that.

People were most sick of the AP grind, needing the right legendaries to be viable and adding in that fights were tuned around those variables people were sick of it. It became a full time job for longer than a week or 2 weeks for world firsts.

 

Yes, I've mentioned the grind. And the bugs. One top raid guild jumped off the handle because they felt they were bug testers instead of playing finished content. The nerfs to EN told me all I needed to know.

I'm going orc hunter for this very reason. Don't fancy getting instagibbed by shamans in pvp. Only thing to worry about on horde will be warriors getting pocketed by holy paladins and given blessing of freedom.

The Nostalrius admins made a post on their OG change.org petition. Looks like they have worked with Blizzard on a few things. Biggest points of interest to me is this dedicated and separate team just for Classic as well as the option being available regardless of the success or demand for it.

Loved playing my Warrior with 2h sword spec and a Shaman spamming Windfury totem in my group. When both procced it was an insta-kill on anything.

i'm definitely intrigued, but i'm too old to pull the all night raid BS that we did during Vanilla... it's nostalgic and all, but not practical, now that i'm a grown A adult with family, mortgage, etc.

Of course, I say all this, then I check the game out and the next post you see is "Wife left me cuz of WoW Classic"

It wont be entirely the same as it was back then. Today there is too much knowledge on the web and players have generally gotten better so clearing the raid content will actually be much easier since we already know all the encounters and how to prepare for them.

I would hope so, but the process of leveling and prepping for raid content, was a considerable task as well... part of me wants that back, but I think i'm viewing through some rose-tinted gnome goggles :/

From MMO Champion:

 

Quote:
 Digital Trends Discusses Classic Servers with Brack and Feasel
Digital Trends also got to interview J. Allen Brack and Jeremy Feasel on the Classic announcement.
 
  • Blizzard wants the launch experience of Classic to be smooth and successful.
  • The experience will be as identical to Vanilla WoW as possible, but they are not sure at which point in the patch life cycle of the original game it will take place.
  • The team wants to create a Blizzard-quality experience of the original game.

 

 

So it seems, Classic WILL be as vanilla as it can possibly be. I'm gonna laugh when the complaints come through.
